General Settings

Use “General Settings” to adjust global behavior of the CyberSEO Pro plugin. These options are dynamic and reversible, so all the changes get reversed back when the appropriate option is disabled.

RSS pull mode

The RSS pull mode can be set to “auto” and “by cron of manually” modes. In “auto” mode the plugin will try to pull the feeds using pseudo cron, which triggers then somebody opens your site in the browser. This is the most unreliable method. Also if you want to pull the feed every certain period of time (say every hour), you need to use your server cron. Also this method is much more reliable. Thus the “cron” mode is highly recommended. Read more about cron here.

Disable auto updates

Allows you to disable auto updates. Otherwise CyberSEO will try to update itself every 24 hours.

Header code

Some CyberSEO Pro presets like “Amazon products search page” may use specific HTML CSS styles and scripts. So it’s recommended to include them into every post’s <head>. If you don’t use these presets, just leave it blank or modify it according to your needs. Especially if you think that these elements could be potentially used by search engines as footprints to find out that your site uses an autoblogging script.

Open Links in a New Window

Use this option to make all links open in the new window (target=”_blank”).

Use rel=”nofollow”

When enabled, the rel=”nofollow” attribute will be added to every link in posts and pages.

Use rel=”referrer”

When enabled, the rel=”noreferrer” attribute will be added to every link in posts and pages.

Encrypt links

When enabled, all external links will be encrypted. This feature can be used to cloak your affiliate links etc.

Post images

Enable this option to dynamically show or hide images when post is displayed. It maybe useful when you want to hide the 1st post image when it’s the same as featured one. This option can be used to solve the “duplicated image” problem, described here. The following options are available:

  • show all images
  • hide first image
  • hide all images but post thumbnail
  • hide post thumbnail

Keep downloaded images

When enabled, it preserves all the downloaded images and videos when an appropriate syndicated post is permanently deleted when you click “Empty Trash” in the WordPress dashboard or when the before_delete_post hook is triggered.

Link to source

Use this option to link the post titles to the actual sources instead of their local copies.

Morphing RSS Host Mode

Use this option to enable the Morphing RSS Host Mode, which allows one to generate unique feed content with Spintax and built-in synonymizer.

Full text extractor URL

Here you can specify the URL of the full text RSS extractor. It can be some 3rd-party service or a local script which runs at your own host. It is recommend to use the local one You can freely downloaded the Full-Text-RSS script from here, unzip the compressed directory and upload it to the /wp-content/plugins/cyberseo folder of your site. After that the full text extraction feature will be enabled and its URL will be found automatically. The Full-Text-RSS script is not a part of CyberSEO. It’s a an optional script which can be used by CyberSEO Pro as a 3rd-party service in accordance to GPL.

Preset directory

An absolute path (not an URL!) to a folder with user-defined presets at your own server.

Instagram session ID

Allows you to set Instagram session ID, which will be used to scrape Instagram user posts. Please check this manual on how to get it.

Amazon associate tag

Enter your Amazon associate tag here. Associates earn commissions by using their own websites to refer sales to To get a commission, an Associate must have an Associate tag. The Associate tag is an automatically generated unique identifier that you will need to get paid for sales.

Disable feed duplication control

When this option enable, the CyberSEO does not check the feed URL uniqueness, so the same feed can be added more than once.

Proxy list

Here you can paste your proxy list. One proxy per line in the following format: IP:PORT or USERNAME:[email protected]:PORT

Shuffle proxies

Shuffle the proxy list every time the plugin tries to connect some another host.

Syndication log

Here you can see the last syndication log, which may look like somehow this:

[08-09-20 10:09:04] Syndicating from
[08-09-20 10:09:04] Processing post “NeXt Sneak Peek: John Slattery Faces Rogue AI in New Fox Thriller”.

[08-09-20 10:09:05] Done.
[08-09-20 10:09:08] Success. 1 post was added.

Enable debug mode

Enable WordPress debug mode for the whole site, so all PHP errors, notices and warnings to be displayed. This is likely to modify the default behavior of PHP which only displays fatal errors and/or shows a white screen of death when errors are reached. It is not recommended to enable this option on live sites; they are meant for local testing and staging installs.

Complete uninstall

Enable it if you want to remove all CyberSEO Pro data on plugin delete. Don’t enable it if you want to keep your feed settings etc in WordPress database even when the CyberSEO Pro plugin files are physically deleted from your server.
